Best headphones I've ever had

Summary: I've owned many cheap headphones for computer use and thought they were fine. Then I put these on for the first time and was blown away by the deep, full sound. I started hearing things in games, movies and music I had never heard before.
Pros: - Great sound for the price. Deep, full bass and clear, rich mids and highs. - mic sounds very clear, is adjustable and DETACHABLE - Velvet ear cups are like a soft head hug. - nice cord length - lightweight and very comfortable for long periods of use - They don't squish your head in a vice like...
Cons: - The light weight can make them feel fragile (though I've abused these for 5 years and only now breaking down) - detachable mic can be easily lost if you're not careful - velvet ear coverings are more difficult to clean than vinyl or leather - inner covering over the speakers can rub against out...
Summary: Microphone piece is separate but not replaceable?
Pros: Works GREAT on my Fatal1ty MoBo and had no problems installing or using
Cons: This Microphone is too quiet. At the max volume for the headset and the max in my Control Panel sound settings, decibel level, and volume mixer is like someone talking to me from across my house. still worth the money, but take the volume into consideration
Pros: This is the best headset I have own to date. Very happy with High quality sounds coming out of this headset. Headset looks beautiful. I use it for gaming. The company warehouse delivery service is amazing. It arrived in 2-3 days.
Cons: Headset looks and feels very delicate. I am afraid of the wire longevity, it looks fragile too. Sound is kind of low. Other than this very happy with purchase.
Pros: *Pretty comfortable *Look nice *Fairly durable *Sound is good *People can hear me
Cons: Its hard to complain about a headset at this price point when it has lasted me 2 years. The one thing I wish it did was noise canceling from the sounds of my life around me! I can hear everything going around my house while I'm gaming. Otherwise its a nice headset.
Summary: I mentioned earlier that my old pair finally died; I should count my lucky stars that the headset lasted as long as it did (most headsets won't make it past 1 year), but the reason my first pair died annoyed me a bit.
Pros: I just got a new pair of these in the mail a few hours ago. My old one died. That sounds like a con, but it took them somewhere around 4-5 years to kick the bucket. These things have a huge life span if you treat them right. Sound quality is really good for the price, and unlike many other headph...
Cons: None really. You can't complain when a pair lasts for almost 5 years, but I will say something in the Other Thoughts regarding this.
Summary: Short and to the point, they are cheap, great sound, and good quality. I've dropped and yanked this headset and it still looks great and works even better. All the reviews of it being garbage quality I feel like they are either purposefully destroying their products or lying, because I've had mine...
Pros: Sound quality is pretty great. They are comfortable as well even with glasses on. The opposite of some of the reviews I'm seeing about the set being to tight The cord is pretty long, however it never tends to be a problem or get in the way. In fact the long cord is somewhat of a Pro. You can almo...
Cons: Honestly I cannot think of many cons, if any at all. If you are in need of an inexpensive pair of headphones with great sound quality these are your headphones. The only thing I can think of is if you are hot-natured, they may make your ears warm.
